While trying to catch a flight out of New York City on Wednesday, Lena Dunham experienced a major delay — but that's not why she's pissed.
As Dunham sat at her gate waiting for flight updates, she overheard a transphobic conversation between two American Airlines attendants.
The airline quickly responded to Dunham's tweets and asked her to provide more details.
Fans immediately thanked Dunham for speaking out.
Trans people hear hate speech on a daily basis. As Dunham's tweets show, they can't even board a plane without being subjected to cruel commentary.
What these flight attendants said is not OK. Companies should hold their employees to the highest standard and strive to eliminate hateful dialogue.
Props to Dunham for speaking up.
